Sayher & Amelia. Melbourne Botanical Gardens & The Substation.

Sayher was the first photographer I met when I arrived in Melbourne, and we hit it off instantly. I was really thankful for having a friend in the industry, especially since I was relatively new to Melbourne. I couldn't be happier to hear when he got engaged to Amelia and was even more honoured to be asked to capture their big day. Here's to Always & Forever.

Stephan & Kate. Krefeld, Germany.

London, July 2015. "Hey Jon, I learnt a new word from a friend today. I think you will like it. It's German."

I looked up at Ivan with eager anticipation, knowing of our mutual love for similar philosophies.

"Geborgenheit - it's the feeling like being in your mother's womb."

Stephan & Kate got married in a small town called Krefeld, west of Germany, an hour from Dusseldorf. Along with friends & family, they made long trip from Melbourne, where they now reside & where they first met while Stephan was backpacking 8 years ago. Since then, Kate has picked up German, and quite well at that, and they decided to celebrate their big day where Stephan grew up. It was a intimate affair amongst their dearest loved ones, overflowing with beautiful sense of home, warmth & comfort. Geborgenheit indeed.

Jason & Kim. Tanarimba, Malaysia.

It's been 2 months since Krystin & I got engaged, and wedding planning has gotten well underway. Boy, has it been a journey. From having a vision, to actually implementing it while balancing costs & expectations from parents; the past few weeks has been nothing short of overwhelming. I've always known that planning a wedding would be overwhelming, but I guess I never fully understood the extent of it. I'm just glad that I have Krystin by my side & we've just been mindful that at any point, wedding planning should bring us closer together rather than further apart. I definitely have a new found respect & reverence for every couple; knowing how much time, effort & heart have gone into making each decision to make their wedding day truly theirs. Jason & Kim invited me to be part of their wonderfully rustic wedding in Tanarimba, a tropical rainforest 1 hour from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
I can only hope my storytelling invites you to be part of theirs too. Enjoy.
